One of my favorite parts about summer is that it is cherry season. I love eating them fresh or frozen and in all dessert forms. I love cherry banana bread, cherry smoothies, and cherry granola.

And these little cherry-filled ramekins of French deliciousness are the essence of summer. Cherry clafoutis is one of my favorite recipes, and this is a Paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free version.

  1. It never occurred to me to grind up chia seeds – brilliant! I also adore cherry clafouti and now I’ll make some – thanks!

  2. Could this be made in a square baking dish or would that throw off the baking time/texture. I can’t wait to make this 🙂

    1. I’m sure it could be made in a square baking dish (I was planning on trying that soon). The texture would be the same, buuut I’m not exactly sure how that would change the time of baking. I would say to check it after 30 minutes, and if it looks like it needs more time to check on it every 5 minutes after that. I’m really curious now!
